should not be content with sitting down to
defend yourselves against evil habits, but
should also be active in doing good. By 'doing
good' I mean making yourselves useful and doing
small kindness' to other people - whether they
are friends or strangers.
It is not a difficult
matter, and the best way to set about it is to
make up your mind to do at least one 'good turn'
to somebody every day, and you will soon get
into the habit of doing good turns always.
It does not matter how
small the 'good turn' may be - even if it is
only to help an old woman across the street, or
to say a good word for somebody who is being
badly spoke of. The great thing is to do
